talk? >> guest: rarely come and what president obama basically delegated the iraq file to vice president joe biden, and vice president biden -- >> host: when did that happen? >> guest: it happened in 2009. very early -- well, maybe even, well yeah, 2009 in the first part. so, he had the lead for the iraq policy. and a lot of this is reflected in my book. but there was a debate about how much to get involved behind maliki, and the investor at the time, ambassador chris hill pretty much thought that maliki was the man we had to work with and that his rival didn't really have a good chance of making it to the prime minister post not withstanding the fact that his party won more seats than maliki's party but there was a debate in the government where vice president joe biden came down and was in favor of working with maliki as there would be a necessary evil or just the man that was going to be there. so, when things really get hot or when there is a crisis, vice president wyden calls and he called the iranian flights to syria. he called about the release. but it just seems that hi
with some politics, i'm struck when you talk about republicans as they. i know you insist despite voting for president obama twice now that you're still a republican. but as i go through your record on some social issues and even foreign policy issues i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. i'm a republican who grew up along with george bush xli. i grew up with ronald reagan, cap weinberger, frank carlucci that republican party, the problemen party of dick lugar and john tower. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. the country is changing demo graphically. if the republican party does not change along with that demographic, they are going to be in trouble.
party. he twice supported president obama and talks about a deep vein of tolerance within the party. >> general powell and i have been friends since he quit being a general. we don't see everything the same way. one thing plain, republicans in this election did poorerly among hispanics and poorly among african-americans. the good thing is with the right kind of policies and the right kind of effort we'll do that. remember george bush got 44% of the hispanic vote. >> you once said colon powell is on the main street of the policy. >> what do you think of his comments, particularly about intolerance? >> i think he is spot on and i see the republican party moving away from the olympia snowe's and people with great ideas. the rhetoric in this last campaign really turned off a lot of people, black, lateineo and gay. i saw newt gingrich talking about marriage equality and how the republican party will have to start embracing or be left behind. i think that is very, very true. i would love to see stop thinking how to win elections and how to address the issues of america. if we focus on sol
's comments, particularly about the republican party. he has now twice support president obama. he talks about a deep vein of intolerance within the party. how did that sit with you? >> well, general powell and i have been friends since he quit being a general and could be involved in politics. we don't see everything the same way but one thing very plain, republicans in this election did more poorly among hispanics, much more poorly among asian-americans and typically poorly among african-americans. we have to improve our standing among all of those the good thing is with the right kind of policies and the right kind of effort, we will do that. remember george bush, the last republican, got 44% of the public vote. not like there's some 1,000-year history here. >> you once said that colin powell is in the mainstream of the republican party. do you believe that today? >> i believe he is on the vast majority of the issues, i believe he see it is through his own prism. >> mayor booker what do you think about that comment, particularly intolerance directed toward this president? >> first of all, i

killed while they were making bombs and six others died in two strikes from u.s. drones. we will talk about the algeria operations in a bit, but, next, it started with hope and change but ended with a partisan warfare over the economy. reviewing some of president obama's first term and what it could mean for the second term. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? >> this is the view looking down the mall to the washington monument to the lincoln memorial. the mood here this weekend is much different than it was four years ago. fewer people. perhaps fewer expectations. the sense of optimism for many has waned after four tough economic years. what happened? what is nex
're moving off minoring in hip-hop and we'll talk economics here. president obama, maybe we'll talk hip-hop as well, in a final formal news conference before he takes the oath of office here in his second term spoke this morning, pushing for support on raising the debt ceiling. >> and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> so the president says there will be no ransom, you heard him say no bargaining chip in this whole debt ceiling debate. the deadline to raise that ceiling is approaching quickly. some members in congress say they're willing to shut down the government to avoid raising that limit now. joining me now is ben stein. nice to have you
a new situation. >> for all the talk about u.s. troop moves under president obama, doubling down in afghanistan. >> it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 u.s. troops to afghanistan. >> winding down and eventually ending the war in iraq. >> now, it's time to turn the page. >> certainly, his first term and perhaps his entire presidency will be remembered for one night. >> tonight, i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that kill ed osama bin laden. >> he escaped the problem that democrats have been since vietnam is become weak on national security. exhibit "a" is killing osama bin laden. >> the truth is, it's our seal who is did it and both the bush and the obama administration deserves credit. but it happened under the president's watch. >> i wanted to present with you a little gift which represents what president obama and vice-president biden and i have been saying, we want to reset our relationship. >> the much touted u.s. reset with russia never seemed to materialize. after president ob
, and i don't know how you prevent a war unless you talk to both sides. >> that's what candidate obama said in 2008. these two men are very much in sync. i'm not the first to say this, this is really a band of brothers. the president, vice president biden, john kerry secretary of state is and chuck hagel, if they're all confirmed, they all served together on the senate foreign relations committee. so they really know each other, and they are in sync in a way that i don't think we've seen a team like this before. this isn't a team of rivals. >> beginning to sound like good ol' boys. by the way, where are the women in this administration forth coming? >> hillary is gone. >> there's valerie, john. leave it alone. >> solis is leaving. >> can i finish? >> yeah. >> hillary is gone. all the other jobs were occupied by white man. i don't think this president feels the compulsion to look like a benatante. if the republicans want to argue that the president's cabinet isn't diverse enough, have at it. >> did you see the group with obama with the sleeves rolled up? they were all boys. out of 14 or
talk to a larger question. nia is completely right. the obama people have continued polling, polling, polling, polling. and they feel like they have the public on their side. and their choice of words. for instance, yesterday the president talked about education. education polls really well among women. so they know what they're doing when they play the outside game. >> well said. thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, welcome back to "hardball." glenn thrush. beginning to sound like a pack of moon shiners. remember them, chasing the revenuers out of town? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
in washington will be over the debt ceiling. can president obama end this craziness and bypass congress altogether? we'll talk about the out of the box solutions and whether they would work. >>> and, finally, this is the signature of the man who might be the next treasury secretary. we'll look back through history to see if there's any loopy president. speaking of secretaries of the treasury three former holders of the office and many other statesmen and women offering advice to the president on a new gps special tonight "memo to the president, road map for a second term." tonight at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> first, here's my take. chuck hagel's nomination as america's next secretary of defense has drawn fire from people who say he's outside of the main stream. in fact, he's a pretty straight forward, traditional republican on most issues with a reluctance to go to war, born of knowledge and experience. where hagel does appear out of the mainstream in washington's world of group think is on iran. which i would argue is a good thing because washington desperately
. nations must be wise enough to understand ho. host: chuck hagel. then-senator barack obama and chuck hagel traveling to the middle east. hagel co talks about the limits of power. guest: one of the conditions that president obama and his team said, a lot of demands and expectations around the world. a lot of challenges. america's role is to not challenge the foes, but to be dependable for the allies. i think one of the real challenges is when you think strategically. when you had the middle east crisis, you had rising problems with north korea. that is what chuck hagel is talking about. you need to figure out how, given the limitations, it can matter in certain places. that is a realistic assessment. part of the role of the united states is to go into the interior to redesign and so there are less a threat to the united states. when you have limited power, it makes someone like chuck tickle very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that -- chuck hagel very skeptical of the ability of united states to do that. when he traveled with president obama, a think this was part of thi
be the state of our environment causing health issues. good point. >> we talked about the diversity of president obama'ska cabinet, lala writes in, give me a frickin' break 47 percent of his people are women. how about you people -- how about you folks in the media an especially the left spend your time yelling and screaming about different issues >> bill: i remind you of a picture of president obama with 10 of his closest advisors. all 10 were men. one was black. >> this is "the bill press show." i can't imagine anything better. you're getting a ton of shrimp and it tastes really good!

the temperatures to plunge into the 20s and the 30s. but we have a taste of spring coming up. we'll talk about that coming up. >> thank you. >>> the house is back in session today and president obama wasting no time this morning making it very clear to lawmakers what he expects in the coming days. danielle nottingham has more from the white house. >> reporter: it was the president's last news conference of his first term and he made his position clear, he will not negotiate with congress over raising the debt limit. president obama is calling on congress to raise the government's borrowing limit. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize us to spend more. all it does is say that america will pay its bills. and we are not a deadbeat nation. >> reporter: without a deal, the government could run out of money to pay its bills by late february or early march. but republican leaders are demanding significant spending cuts in exchange for any agreement to raise the debt ceiling. in a statement, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says the debted limit is
his recommendations to president obama this tuesday on ways to curb gun violence. coming up about month after the school shootings in connecticut, speculation is growing on what he will propose and also the arguments on sunday political talk shows. peter doocy has more on the plan expected to be unveiled this week. is the nra changing their tune on gun control? >> reporter: no, they are not. david keen is still steamed that obama administration is putting emphasis on it. he doesn't think he is tag their concerns seriously. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically that they question that they would address what can we do to prevent these kinds of things in the future. the evidence shows that an assault weapons ban are not going to do that. what will do it is doing something about a broken mental health system that allows people that potentially violent to be the streets. >> reporter: furthermore, the nra is making it clear they don't think there are enough members of congress that favor an assault weapons ban to pass one. >> gregg: it's quite the face-off. is the nra's
. have a great day. >> shannon: a live report coming up from washington on president obama. the debt seal ceiling takes a new turn. can the president make an end run around congress? some lawmakers saying it should be an option. we'll talk with former governor, haley barbour. confirmation clash. republican senator lindsay graham vows to hold up john brennan's confirmation to the cia until we get inching on the attacks in benghazi. and the national cathedral says yes to same-sex marriage, receiving cheers and jeers. we will have a fair and balanced debate. america's news headquarters from the nation's capitol starts right now. president obama's second term hasn't started officially, but the agenda and the cabinet are taking shape. so are some of the clashes over the president's nominations. jennifer griffin has more on the fights ahead. >> reporter: first, there will be the confirmation battles, many of which seem like they will be bruising. none more than the hearing before the senate armed services committee over the new defense secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early a
. using tragedy for change. >> bob: do you know that barack obama called every one of the families that lost kids in the massacre and talked to them for a minimum of 45 minutes? give them credit. >> eric: he is using children who allegedly written this -- >> bob: children getting massacred. what is the problem? >> bob: let me see if we defend this. go to newtown, connecticut. >> kimberly: is it healthy and appropriate to use children as political pawns? >> eric: it's perfectly healthy and -- >> bob: this is perfectly healthy and the right thing to do. >> dana: are kids that are victims of the drug war, are they part of the press conference? >> eric: chicago murders up. they represented hundreds more of those killed fightinger if rornist afghanistan. this is chicago where they have the toughest, the toughest gun laws in the country. >> andrea: deal with the problem in chicago. do you know what he announced today he would be doing? divesting. pension funds in illinois. >> bob: good. >> greg: >> really, bob? that is denying public employee pension retirement. that is profitable for th
got problems if that happens. >> sure, anything can happen. hagel talks expansively. he's a little like biden. to his credit and i think something obama likes about him, he's not a totally programmed -- >> biden had a lot to do with pushing this, didn't he? >> i think that's a key thing to understand. those two guys are really close. as far as the speed of it, i think they drew a lesson from what happened to susan rice. she hung out there twisting on the vine. they didn't marshall the forces. she didn't have a lot of public defenders. this is the opposite of that. this is an organized, quick campaign. they want to batten down the hatches and basically make him safe for people to vote for and move forward with it and get the controversy behind them. >> let's talk about another big event that happened this week, another shoe that dropped, general powell this sunday. let's look at general powell on our own "meet the press" and the way he went at this very directly. he was very pointed here in the middle of what we're going snow you, very pointed for a politician to talk with this kind
.r.a. expressing confidence that an assault weapons ban already being talked about in washington will not make it through congress. the n.r.a. is standing by over concerns of a meeting with vice-president joe biden saying the obama administration needs to stop focusing solely on guns and gun owners. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically, that t they would have addressed what will we do in the future. what will we do about a broken mental health system that allows people potentially violent to be on the streets? >> and a liberal think tank weighing in for the first time shall the center for american progress announcing it's joining a full scale campaign to push for more gun control laws. >> the organizations will be working to work in the states, and ensure at that we have the voice and really have the american people and really gun owners who listen to the proposals, their voices at the table as well. >> harris: all of this in the wake of a week long series of meetings hosted by the vice-president as he puts together a plan to curb violence, he says. we expect that plan to be
unresolved. president obama told reporters he is willing to work with republicans to reign in spending but he wants to have those talks separate from raising the debt ceiling. >> while i am willing to p compromise and find common ground over the deficit we cannot afford a debate about whether or not they should pay the bills they have already racked up. congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time social security checks and veteran's benefits will be delayed. >> we are not going to do it without putting in place a spending reform. these cuts promise to transpire but never do are not going to do the job any more. >> senate republican leader mitch mcconnell wanted to say the president needs to get serious about it. you can see the battle lines clearly drawn in washington. >> also pointing out in 2006 president obama then senator voted against raising the ceiling. >> they discussed his time spent in prison whether he feared for his life and what the first moments were like for him. >> i came in the prison around 3 in the morning. initially there's some pressure put on me. they
barack obama and chuck hagel traveling through the middle east. as you hear the words of chuck hagel, she talks about the limits of power that echoed with the present -- what the president said when he was running for the white house in 2008. guest: one of the conditions that president obama and his team came in and said it, there are a lot of demands are roman world and a lot of challenges. america's role is not just to challenge the foes but to be dependable for allies. when americans power is doubte4d, the allies doubt the ability to stand by them. what is the roster of portis that the united states had to focus on, a particular at the time of the global economic crisis when you have the middle east crisis, you had rising problems with north korea. that is what chuck hagel is saying. we do not have a magic wand to be all things to all people. you need to figure out how, given the limitations to have, you can matter and roll from those into the next issues. that is a realistic assessment, of a power that would even on the neo conservative side would also think that the part of the role
. there are a lot of americans out there who own guns who think president obama will want to take them away. >> well, that is true. as we talked about before. we're seeing an incredible swelling not only in the purchasing of guns but in the, in nra membership as well. i think that there is an expected, expectation on the part of the administration that the national rifle association's power is going to be quite, formidable and that they are not going to be able to pass everything in their legislative package, which as you mention is going to be outlined in specifics, soon. it will include, an assault weapons ban. it will include restrictions on magazine clips and high capacity ammunition. that is the kind of thing that will be fought hard by the nra. white house doesn't expect an assault weapons ban to pass but it will include it in its goals because they want to include everything in its goals. i think what they're expecting in the end to find consensus on is more like, i said, consensus and cooperation in the area of background checks and screening, before guns are purchased. maybe the closing of
tested triggers for atomic weapons. this made after intense talks and another round is set for next month. and back in this country president obama will be officially sworn in the blue room. it must happen on the 20th of january. but all of the formal pomp and circumstance will be in front of the capitol on monday. during the first inaugural two million people attended the event. it is expected that the crowds will be smaller with 700,000 braving the chilly temperatures in the nation's capt cament . the president has seen a lot of excitement with this day dubbed the national day of service and the president helped to paint a mural in a local elementary school and joining us now is a former obama white house spokesman . welcome, great to have you here. thank you for having me. >> what about the day of service and why is it important to tie it to his in- inauguration. >> we are kicking off with a national day of service. this is a tradition that the president would like future presidents to carry on. repairing schools and making care package for the service members and we are seeing a great
legible. in order not to deface our currency. >> obama having some fun with his new pick for treasury secretary, jack lew. let's talk go that and the serious issues he'll deal with on the roundtable joined by begg from the wall. >> caller: al hunt from the bloomberg view, david walker, and paul krugman of "the new york times" and princeton. i'm going to take a stab at trying to explain this trillion dollar platinum coin issued right at the beginning so we can then debate it. it's rooted in 1997 law. you see the law right there that gave the president the ability to -- the mint the ability to do commemorative platinum coins. what they didn't do is set a limit on how much it could be worth so the idea was you get a coin like this, a mock-up right there. deposit it in the federal reserve. say it's worth a trillion dollars and would extend the debt limit for about a year and the government would be able to go on. the white house earlier in the week did not close the door on this and bubbled up through the blogosphere, but, paul krugman, you got everybody's attention on friday when you wro
for the american center of law and justice. good to have you here this morning, jordan. in your piece you talk about religious freedom day. president obama said we remember religious liberty is not just an american human right it is liberty to protected here at home and across the globe of the why is the white house not more involved in this case? >> i think it is outrage just what we've seen from the state department so far. we held back on the criticism because we know it takes time for the executive branch of u.s. government handling all the different issues. they have had since july. we started representing pastor saeed when ripped off a bus. we represented him within 48 hours. they to the a call, to his wife been on fox news in the united states that they couldn't do anything. until last week when the media pressure and attention really turned up because of this hanging judge that was ounce noed. he is sanctioned by the european union. our own u.s. commission on international religious freedom said he should be sanctioned. until that happened and we got this letter from the pastor from ja
